The Dallas Cowboys will have a new offensive coordinator next season.

The Cowboys moved on from their former coordinator, Kellen Moore, who joined the Los Angeles Chargers in the same position.

On Saturday, the Cowboys announced the hiring of Brian Schottenstein to replace Moore.

“Cowboys announced they hired Brian Schottenheimer as their new offensive coordinator,” ESPN reporter Adam Schefter wrote.

The NFL world was quick to react to the news:

“It is once again time for me to tweet the Brian Schottenheimer career summary,” wrote Roger Sherman.

One fan joked that Mike McCarthy and Schottenheimer would create an offense that is “so dysfunctional.”

“Dallas Cowboys’ most recent offensive coordinators: 2023: Brian Schottenheimer 2019-2022: Kellen Moore 2015-2018: Scott Linehan 2012-2014: Bill Callahan 2007-2011: Jason Garrett,” noted Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota.


“Brian Schottenheimer during his time with the Seahawks •’18: 26.8 PPG (9th) •’19: 25.3 PPG (9th) •’20: 28.7 PPG (8th),” wrote one fan.

Schottenheimer, whose father famously coached with the Cleveland Browns and the then-San Diego Chargers, began his career with the St. Louis Rams as an assistant coach in 1997.

Schottenheimer last worked as an offensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks from 2018 to 2020. He then went on to serve as the passing game coordinator under former coach Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021. He’s seen above during an Oct. 2021 game with Jacksonville.

Schottenheimer served as a coaching analyst for the Cowboys last season.
